View Full Version : Deadlift video from WV Open

Nothing special. Didn't get alot of footage the wife was watching the kids so only got this one video of my second attempt, this is 518lb I believe. I pulled 535 on my third attempt.

How does the form look to you guys?


I do have some bench pics that I'll try to get posted soon.

It was nice meeting you on Sunday. Nice strong bench by the way. You've got more in you yet!
Only critic I can offer on the deadlift is to work on keeping your back from rounding so much. Push you chest out to help yourself in that regard.
You did get a 4th on the bench didn't you? It was I that you were talking to when you were discussing taking one.

Thanks William. Yeah I remember you. I done 502 on the 4th attempt on bench. I stayed conservative since they were calling so strict that day. At my home gym I'll usually work up to 530 for a single. I took the plunge yesterday and ordered a tighter bench shirt - went with the super katana (super cut version). Ken told me if I can do 530 in a loose F6 then I should expect around 600+ with a proper fitting Super Katana. I took this week off and will start my training back again next week. I'm still learning on the deadlift, only been doing that for about 8 months now. Prior to that I was a bench-jockey and never fooled with squat or deadlift.

Where's your next meet at?

Not sure on next meet. Maybe Ravenwood in Nov.
Not much to choose from.
Where did you say you were located in wv.?
